  1. Chrome glove box?

    Early car goodies - also found in European (non US) cars. Don't throw those away!
  2. 2002ti wannabe project begins

    Scott- thanks for the comments. Been driving both cars lately. The dash flasher is now working all the time in Oscar👍. idle when cold in the blue car is lopy, when warmed up it is too high (1200-1400 rpm). New shifter from Blunt has shorter throw travel and feels better than the stock one I had in the car. Funny how the inside tire wants to break loose a tiny bit starting out at a corner even with a 40% lockup LSD (not really trying to do so). Car rides wonderful but a little weird to me with the taller 13" tires. Swapped the Ansa muffler back on last weekend. Grin factor went up during a Sunday drive. The tii continues to treat me well. It starts easily, idles well and has great power. It does have some valvetrain noise (maybe old rockers arms and/or shafts) and possibly a squealing a/c compressor clutch. I like the ride a little better in the tii - maybe due to the older suspension bushings, 14" tires and cloth seats. It's like an old pair of jeans or sneakers. Need to pull the front subframe for motor mount work and new control arms. That may lead to other things. jim
  3. Driving home from work today, I saw a light green Subaru Forester with VA plates hauling an old Beemer (boot warmer) on a M/C trailer. Guy was doing at least 80-85mph on 95 near Springfield - weaving thru the heavy traffic. Knucklehead.
  4. My 2002 won't be at O-Fest in NOLA...

    Four or five speed tranny Skip?
  5. Analog AEM brand Wideband o2 sensor gauge kit from Jeg's isn't that much, but very helpful in tuning both a tii and carbureted 02. Welding the 02 sensor bung is the hardest part. You are just guessing by making adjustments that may or may not make improvements to the performance of the car. Did you try downloading the Behr a/c instructions manuals from the tii registry website?

    Agree 100% on adding a guard for the release lever. Most garage door openers can have their release (lose power- pull the cord) lever very close to the top of the door. I replaced my opener with a different type that has the release farther inward and not as easily accessible from the outside.

    What flavor ice cream did RAY give you?
  8. Good to know someone here has used the Berlin service. Thanks for reminding me about Koeller. I corresponded with them a few years ago.
  9. Your tii needs some proper tuning and inspection of hoses and distributor as Ray mentions. The idle speed should not drop like you are seeing. Bucking and Backfiring, even a little pff, usually indicates a lean condition. Do you have a CO tester or WIdeband 02 gauge?
  10. Not sure of the timing, but Keith Kreeger's 74tii has NOS injection pump and injectors. Both are Bosch brand I believe. http://www.2002tii.org/kb/103 http://www.bayarea02.com/features/pfister-interview/interview.html Here is a company in the Netherlands who can service the pumps! http://saxonparts.com/injection-service-for-kugelfischer-and-lucas-systems/ here is another company, Classic Garage in Berlin https://www.einspritzpumpen-service.de/kugelfischer/

    Excellent work! Where did you find the door panels? I'm still looking for a new driver's side.
  12. My Green Devil lives again...

    Nice article and pics. Love the color and wheels.
  13. 2002tii rpm drops to 500 when warm

    When was the last time you changed the coolant and flushed the system?
  14. Front Seat Repair

    Tom, put some burlap or jute padding over the springs before the horsehair pads. You have no doubt spent a ton of money and you don't want to ruin those new pads.
